What You Will See on the Art Walk

The "Arlington Art Walk" is a short, self-guided walking tour that connects local galleries, artist studios and public art between Clarendon and Ballston. It was initially created as a fall networking event designed to showcase Arlington's creative side. During the event, gallery hours for participating organizations were extended, special exhibits added and a networking reception added so that friends, neighbors and artists could gather and socialize.

Check out the Art Walk any day of the year at your own pace! Contact galleries and artist studios for hours or appointments.
